On day 11 of the Paleo diet I fell so far of the wagon that I don't know if I'll ever get back on.
Not only did I have McDonalds I ate a large bowl of spaghetti for lunch and topped off the day with a cheeseburger, fries, and a shake from Burgermaster.
The unfortunate part of the day wasn't even eating McDonald's it was the sad fact that I ordered a sausage mcgriddle not knowing what that was. Holy fucking vomit. It's a pancake thing instead of an English muffin thing. I couldn't tell from the picture on the menu. I also thought "griddle" = less fattening. It was so gross. There was syrup inside the pancake. I ate it anyway because I was starving and Babeski was asleep in the car. He had been sick the night before and was finally resting. I was so hungry. And it was so unsatisfying.
Since my downfall I stopped taking photos (shame) but can list some of the things I've consumed: spaghetti, red wine, white wine, chocolate croissant, lemon lavender coffee cake, pecan shortbread cookies, mint Milano cookies, top ramen, pizza, thai food, indian food, subway, soda, Doritos, Ruffles, peperoni sticks, cow milk, cheese, English muffin, crackers, bread, and on and on. My bloat is definitely back.
I don't even know if I have the will power to course correct this sinking ship. I feel really cranky today. Maybe it's all the disgusting food that I'm eating that's making me feel so bad. Who knows. All I can think over and over in my head is FIA (thank you Melissa!).
